At Radiance, we believe that our children can authentically worship just like their parents. It’s our desire that our families would learn how to make Jesus #1 in their hearts and take practical steps to shine His light to the world.
The Children’s Ministry provides our kids with a great start to a meaningful relationship with Christ through fun and practical ways to grow in their faith as we teach them about the Bible from an early age.

We exist to see college students in San Francisco transformed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We strive to create a vibrant community where students are focused on growing together in their love for one another and for God, deepening their understanding of the Bible, and fulfilling the Great Commission by making mature followers of Christ.
Our College Ministry is currently consists of students from San Francisco State University and University of San Francisco.
We believe God has given us creativity to edify the body of Christ. This can vary between photography and video to social media such as our website. By doing so, we provide a resource where they can learn more about Christ and connect with the Radiance community.

As the Experience Team, we manage the overall logistics of Sunday worship at Radiance. We serve our church by setting up chairs for people to sit in, helping people find seats as they come in, and ensuring that the kids feel safe during Children’s Ministry and more.
Though a lot of what we do may seem like all physical work, we believe that it is also spiritual. Just like Abraham built an altar and worshipped God there, we want to create a place of worship where people come before God on Sundays.
The Hospitality Team oversees the food and refreshments for the church. We’re responsible for providing weekly Sunday coffee & pastries, monthly newcomers luncheon, and catering larger congregational celebrations throughout the year (ex: Easter, Thanksgiving, etc).
We believe food and fellowship go hand-in-hand, and our ministry serves to give people a warm welcome in addition to a hot cup of coffee!

The Prayer Team’s mission is to intercede for Radiance through prayer as we live out the vision to see people and places transformed by the advancement of the Gospel in our own lives, community, culture, and world. We submit our plans, thoughts, fear, and joys of our church body, the city, and the world to God both personally and communally. We value the support and power of communal prayer, so we gather on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings to intercede together.
We believe prayer is the beginning of transformation for us as individuals and for the world at large. We want to know God’s heart intimately as we move forward in earnest surrender. We hope you can join us.

The act of enfolding everyone into the body of Christ is important to us, whether the person’s a regular or a newcomer. We want everyone to be warmly, greeted and included - not just at the door of the building, but beyond the walls of the church.
The Welcoming Team is a great place to start serving - all you need is to bring a smile! It’s also a great way to get connected with the church and see the growth of Radiance right before your eyes. It doesn’t matter if you’re an extrovert and introvert, we would love to have you serve with us.

The vision of the Praise Team is to establish an environment where our church community can freely experience God’s presence in worship. We accomplish this by setting up and breaking down equipment, making sure that the audio/visual and technical aspects of the services run smoothly, and continually supporting God’s ministry with personal and corporate prayer.
Communicating the message of Jesus is a major aspect of the Christian faith. The purpose of this team is to ensure all things related to media on Sundays such as worship slides, sermon notes, and website recordings are available for our congregation.
